Scandinavian folklore: A shawl with woven pattern, “Kyrkjetæpe”, was worn over the Sunday best clothes when going to church in winter time. Since at least 1880, it was woven with a cotton warp and wool wefts in a technique called “skillbragd”, equal to Swedish “opphämta”. The name of the technique is derived from that the pattern shed was picked up and opened with a broad wooden stick.
